Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander
We work to create opportunities, share resources and partner with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
We meet with communities, build partnerships and respond to local needs.
We provide clinics, resources, education and training, and health promotion activities.
Increasing the skills of healthcare professionals to engage Aboriginal youth, Elders and all community members about making healthy choices is at the heart of what we do.
We're committed to ensuring better access to reproductive and sexual health services. Our centres are located in Dubbo, Newcastle, Penrith, Ashfield and Fairfield.
- Aboriginal health worker training through our Sexuality, Health and Facilitating Groups course to increase the capacity of Aboriginal health workers to engage Aboriginal youth to better understand their reproductive and sexual health choices
- a safe and private space to talk about reproductive and sexual health through our Strong Family Program. We work with Elders and young people to better understand their reproductive and sexual health choices
- our "Yarning About ..." series - conversations about reproductive and sexual health
- clinics offering a safe space to talk with our clinicians
Reconciliation Action Plan
Our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) formalises our commitment to reconciliation and ensures we are an inclusive employer for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and that our services meet the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
